Smart Vibrating Glove Helps The Hearing And Sight-Impaired To Text
The visual and hearing impaired will soon be able to engage in efficient communication via smartphones or computers.
Individuals afflicted with both sight and hearing impairments have long relied on hand-touch alphabet systems such as Lorm in order to communicate with others. However, communication with the deafblind requires physical contact and knowledge of signing, which may serve as impediments to fast and casual dialogues. To address this concern, researchers at the Design Research Lab in Berlin have developed the Mobile Lorm Glove, a handworn device that translates the German lorm alphabet into digital text and vice versa, thereby facilitating two-way multiplatform communication.
